Turkey Gyro

Turkey Gyro

Gyros are traditionally made with lamb but can also be made with different types of ground meat or even chicken breasts. I normally order the traditional lamb gyro when I’m out but prefer chicken breast or ground turkey at home. After seeing someone make gyros on tv I realized that the meat is really just a meatloaf and it isn’t absolutely necessary to cook it on a spit. My turkey gyro recipe is pretty much a turkey meatloaf that’s sliced and served with the traditional gyro fixings. I like meatloaf to have a mildly sweet barbecue flavor but you can adjust the seasonings to your liking.


Turkey & Bean Chili

Bean and Turkey Chili

The fall and winter means sweater weather. My favorite time of the year! This also means that it’s soup weather. It’s probably not cold enough as yet but I’m getting the party started with turkey and bean chili. I’ve made chili several times before but decided to try adding a bit of ground turkey this time around. Until recently I only tolerated turkey around Thanksgiving but I’ve found that making it in other forms is quite good. The meat is incredibly lean, can be cooked in a variety of ways, and tastes great if seasoned well. And on to the recipe!
